Dr. Heger

Baden | Ihringen

Just a few miles from the French border, in Germany’s southernmost region of Baden, Joachim Heger farms the extraordinary grand crus of Ihringer Winklerberg and Achkarrer Schlossberg. On these steep, volcanic slopes, Joachim gives voice to unique, delicious, ageworthy expressions of pinot noir. For close to 40 vintages, his work has revolutionized the way we can interpret the potential of this ancient wine region. Joachim made a name for himself and Baden with pinot noir, but he also embraces classic Germanic varieties, foremost riesling and silvaner, by allowing each to work its magic on the unique volcanic, loess, and limestone soils.

Dr. Heger 2013 Ihringer Winklerberg Spätburgunder Grosses Gewächs

This pinot noir macerates for 21 days with pigeage twice daily. The wine is settled for 2-3 days before it is racked by way of gravity into new barrels; the wine is never pumped or filtered. Whereas the limestone Merdinger Bühl displays classical black cherry aromas, the volcanic soils of the Winklerberg tend to be driven by bright red fruit—cranberry and raspberry. Tobacco, chocolate and brooding mineral structure.
